Introduction to Trauma, Healing & Resilience

In 2017, the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College received a generous grant from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation to develop resources for trauma-informed Jewish practice. In recent years, there has been a growing public awareness of the impact of trauma on individuals and communities. This reality is especially true at this moment of national anguish and moral outrage.  

Under the leadership of Rabbi Jessica Rosenberg, a 2018 graduate of RRC, we conducted trainings and workshops and developed resources for rabbis, rabbinical students and other Jewish professionals serving individuals and communities impacted by trauma. The project culminated in the publication of Introduction to Trauma, Healing & Resilience by Rabbi Jessica Rosenberg. 

We are thrilled to make this accessible and groundbreaking work available to the public and hope that you will find it useful and will share it widely.
